Overall rating: 

Nice escape

Convenient parking and easy access make this a nice get way for a few minutes of tranquility. We went after heavy rainfall and found portions of the trail flooded out and very muddy. Would probably have rated four stars if the weather hadn’t caused these problems.

We want to acknowledge and thank the past, present, and future generations of all Native Nations and Indigenous Peoples whose ancestral lands we travel, explore, and play on.
